What is Secure SD-WAN?

As the use of business-critical, cloud-based applications and tools continue to increase, distributed organizations with multiple remote offices are switching from performance-inhibited wide-area networks (WANs) to SD-WAN. SD-WAN is a software-defined wide-area network architecture. SD-WAN solutions transform an organization’s capabilities by leveraging the corporate WAN as well as multi-cloud connectivity to deliver high-speed application performance at the WAN Edge of branch sites. SD-WAN provides a centralized control mechanism that can determine and route the ideal path for traffic—MPLS, 3G/4G/5G, or broadband—ensuring organizations can quickly and easily access business-critical cloud applications. But SD-WAN solutions don’t provide in-built security which is critical for direct internet access. Secure SD-WAN enables organizations to enable NGFW with SD-WAN in simplified offering.
